Official Music Video of Vispop Songs You Will Surely Love

Vispop Music Video - Zuprome
VISPOP. Let's expand the world of OPM!

We’ve heard 18 songs from Visayan Pop (Vispop) Music Festival from 3 seasons, and some of these Vispop songs have actually hit the top spot in several local radio station countdowns. Isn’t it great to know that Vispop has successfully filled the gap of some Manila-based music artists! 

The history of Vispop is that Jude Gitamondoc, the brainchild behind this music campaign, wanted to let everyone know that Original Pilipino Music (OPM) isn’t just about the Tagalog songs. The vision of Vispop is create hit songs in the local tongue, Cebuano or Binisaya in general. 

Fast-forward to three years after the first Vispop in 2013, we now have several songs that are played in various radio stations and media outlets, most especially in the social media.

Interestingly, social media played a major role in the success of Vispop. The new media format was able to reach a wider market in no time. Imagine, after an hour posting the official lyrics of Vispop songs online, thousands of people are already sharing and viewing the songs.

The Vispop songs were shared in various social media networks, especially Facebook, and people started making covers on Youtube. Others exerted more efforts in creating music videos.

If you’re a Vispop avid supporter, you might have probably heard these songs. This time, let’s give ourselves a chance to watch their official music videos created by Artist Ko and FatBoys Productions for these Vispop classics.

Just recently launched by FatBoys Production in Facebook, this song won during the 1st Vispop Music Festival. Written by Jewel and Joe Villaflores and performed by Jewel Villaflores, this song tells the story of a girl who’s deeply in love and she’s dedicating the song to her partner. What I find interesting about this song is that it was originally sung by a female while in the Bisaya culture, it’s most of the times the male singing these types of songs. That’s probably one of the reasons why judges loved this piece! Feminism has arrived in the Cebuano music scene.

Pa-pictura Ko Nimo, Gwapo

Originally created by Artist Ko, and performed and written by Marie Salvaleon for the 1st Vispop Music Festival, this song tells a story of a contemporary girl who’s admiring this popular guy. Her mission: to take a picture of this guy and post it online. Despite not placing the top spots, that simple premise with the catchy and bubbly tune turned into a great hit! 

Balay ni Mayang

Created by Fat Boys Production, performed by Kyle Wong and Martina Santiago, and written by Kyle Wong and Marianne Dungog, Balay ni Mayang is the biggest hit in the 1st Vispop Music Festival despite just winning 3rd place. This is basically the vision of Vispop, to write songs that people will love, regardless of its place in the grand finals. After all, making it to the Top 6 of Vispop is already a great news for the artists themselves!


Sa Akong Heart

Did you know that this song was written and submitted by Ronald Ensalada in the Vispop competition but didn’t make it to the finals? After some brainstorming, Jude Gitamondoc realized that the original version of the song can be improved and become a hit song with the help of Medyo Maldito (Rowell Ucat), a popular social media personality. To add more kilig factor, teen Cebuano heartthrob Von Saw performed this song.

FatBoys Production just released the official music video of the song written by Kurt Fick and performed by Kurt Fick featuring Paola Sandiego. This Vispop song is currently the most request song in various MOR Radio Station. Hahahahasula is basically about falling in love with a person who’s in someone else’s arms yet believing that fate will find a way that they will end up in each other’s arms. With that concept popular to many young at heart these days, don’t wonder why it’s perhaps the most popular Cebuano or Bisaya or generally Vispop song today!

#UPCebuAfterSunset compiles ghost stories from UP Cebu

Ghost hunting, horror stories, paranormal activities… you can visit UP Cebu to experience these out-of-this-world events. Yes, University of the Philippines Cebu is one of the spooky places in Cebu where there are spiritual sightings.
I have compiled several ghost sightings in the campus as determined by some of the students I’ve talked to and conversations heard and read here and there, some of which are edited version of confessions from “Speak UP, Iskolar” published late last year. Believe it or not, according to them, these stories are true and they can attest to the veracity of these experiences.
I have categorized these stories according to the places these ghost stories happened. If you have additional stories you experienced, feel free to share those to us by sending it here.

For the past few weeks, Cebu City has been filled with Cebuano poems locally called as balak being posted in random corners like the street walls, electric posts, skywalk, and other public places!
Here are some places that Cebuano poems were posted:
